BikeBandit.com just posted my third article. This one is about building your toolkit, and what spare parts to bring along.
Just wanted to let everyone out there know of a few things that have happened since finishing up my trip.
Justin Long, from Long Riders Radio interviewed me for one of his podcasts. You can listen to it on his site or get it on iTunes or Stitcher.
Also, I’m writing a series of articles about my experience for Bike Bandit. I’ve been buying parts and tools from them for years (check them out next time you need something), so it’s kind of cool to be writing for them now.
The first two articles are here and here. I’ll make sure to post when new articles are published.
Check them out and let me know what you think!
Well, I’ve made it back to Denver, which means this trip is over!
(They could’ve made the sign a little more colorful…)
After Death Valley, I headed further south to make my last stop in California…Joshua Tree.
I left the Bay area and had a few more hours riding down the coast before heading inland.
From Seattle, I continued south through Portland and San Francisco. I stayed with a friend in Portland who took me on a couple nice rides around the area.
Well, it’s a couple weeks later than expected, but my bike has finally arrived in Vancouver.
I got to Vancouver a few days before the bike arrived, and stayed with my buddy Alex, who I’d met a month prior in Hawaii.
Most of my time was spent checking out the various local beers while anxiously waiting for my bike.
My consensus is that it’s a pretty great city…I think I could live there if it weren’t for the ridiculously high cost of living.
